    > So, get a Raspberry Pi for a few bucks, install LMS on a SD card (piCorePlayer or Max2Play) and hook the Pi to the router.

    This is something I considered, but the ideal for me would be to have the software embedded in the router itself, as it is running OpenWrt Linux.

    So LMS is not what I need. I need a minimal software replacement of mysqueezebox.com services to run my Booms independently from it.

    Nonsense, you can run LMS for your local music and Radio stations without mySqueezebox.com. Max2Play on a Pi makes this dead easy, just tick a box.

    Why no thread directly addressing the issue?

    Total bollox.

    1. It looks like a hardware failure with the Load Balancing equipment not a hack.
    2. All Squeezeboxes will continue to work if you have a local LMS server. Spotify & Deezer etc won't work but radio will.

    Well, as mentioned already by others, LMS doesn't need MSB.com at all.

    Why on the router? What happens, if you get a new one? With a Pi for $5 you just plug it back into the new router.

    But I do understand that fiddling with RPis and Linux is not for everyone.

    For OP to be using OpenWRT you would have thought he was a fiddler!

    AFAIK Michael deleted sometime ago some stuff in lms cause that stuff is only used in the mysqueezebox version of lms.
    Code:
    Remove SlimService specific code. 7.9 will never be run on mysqueezebox.com.
    minimal software? Overkill?
    Does anybody (except Michael) really know whats behind mysqb?
    I guess everything but minimal Software.

    Where do all the "hackers attacks mysqb" lines come from? And do these insiders really know what is the definition of "hacker" ?

    No, as you can see on the twitter feed Michael is indeed working the MySB issue. Doesn't seem to be trivial this time.

    Ok, got it. Never personally tried LMS as I never needed it.

    > Why on the router?

    To have one less piece of hardware running and consuming and one less plug in the wall (the router's USB does only give 0.5W).
    And because my router is capable of having additional packages installed, run Perl etc.

    > What happens, if you get a new one?

    I will surely buy another one that can run OpenWrt.

    > With a Pi for $5 you just plug it back into the new router.

    I don't want to have another (ok, low consumption -but still) piece of hardware running 24/7 as I already have my router running 24/7.

    > But I do understand that fiddling with RPis and Linux is not for everyone.

    That is not my problem. I do actually own a Pi already, but it's designated to other purposes.
    I compiled OpenWrt myself and installed it on my router.
    I do fiddle.


    As it stands now, the best option is to trying to make LMS work on OpenWrt following the instructions for other Linux distributions. In absence of pre-compiled package, I am afraid this project will have to wait at least until Christmas vacations.
